Please add extras (deleted scenes, featurettes, etc) to the backlog
+1 to both ideas, especially the refresh data one. Such a chore in Infuse to do it manually and it’s so sloooooooow
I really want this as well, I have a lot of local extras for some of my movies. This is the only thing missing before I can fully move to Infuse.
Re-quoting for more visibility. Please upvote this guys post!
I’d also really like to see faster refreshing of data from Plex, or, to help with that, background refreshing of that data so I don’t have to manually trigger it. There’s already a feature request for that, and apparently there’s some possible issues with implementing it at the moment, but it would still make the experience far more convenient for me. Faster loading of libraries in general, if it was possible would be nice, too - I have pretty big libraries (4800 movies, 850 TV shows) and it takes around 15 - 30 seconds for them to open, as opposed to about 2 on Plex. Obviously, it isn’t a totally fair comparison, since they’re accessing things differently, but it does make it a bit of a pain to look through my library, although I can just search if I’m looking for something specific.
+1 for Plex Extras here.
Currently this feature is not working in the official Apple TV Plex client (Playback of files never starts), so having this feature in Infuse would be of great service to users that rely on it.
And in our household, let us finally delete the Plex client on the Apple TV…
+1 for Extras and Trailers
1 especially because the missing support means that, if I want to use Infuse, I have to move all the EXTRA files that I had put in place following the Plex scheme.
(in reality I already did since I much prefer Infuse as a player over Plex app, but is far from ideal)
Again, support it. You must extend the functionality of Infuse to these side areas to keep user in your application and offer additional benefits to the users
+1 (I assume
Bonus Content / Movie Extras / Special Features is a dupe?)
Please add support for the Extras folder. Just joined and the missing Extras support ist most important coming from Kodi on Raspi.
Apart from the special handling/presentation desired for extra content, currently the videos placed in my Extas folders are scanned
and thrown/shown as movies at the moment, screwing up the list of the actual movies.
I posted this in a separate request:
Request for Support of Bonus Content - implementing the standard Plex Local Media Assets methodology
Bonus Material files make Infuse somewhat unusable because these files are displayed in the UI how as another version of the movie. This makes it impossible to tell which item listed is the actual movie. Additionally, some of the Bonus Material files are mapped to completely unrelated movie names. Plex has implemented a Local Media Assets methodology that addresses this issue. Here’s a UI comparison of how Infuse and Plex handle bonus content, using the movie Annihilation as an example:
Attachment: Infuse - Annihilation - Extras: Infuse shows the main movie and the extras as 6 different versions of the movie Annihilation.
Attachment: Plex - Annihilation - Extras: Plex shows one instance of the movie and after selecting that main movie, it shows each of the featurettes as Bonus Material related to this main movie.
The way Plex handles this is through file naming and/or folder naming. All of the files for the movie are placed in the same folder. The Bonus Material files are named “descriptive file name -featurette.mkv”. Alternatively, all of the extras can be placed in a sub-folder named “Featurettes”. Allowable Bonus Material files names are:
-behindthescenes, -deleted, -featurette, -interview, -scene, -short, -trailer. Similarly, allowable bonus material subdirectory names are Behind The Scenes, Deleted Scenes, Featurettes, Interviews, Scenes, Shorts, Trailers.
The short-term, it would be great for Infuse to simply ignore file names and sub-directories that follow the Local Media Assets naming convention. Showing these files causes a huge usability problem.
In the long-term, it would be great for Infuse to add support for Local Media Assets following the methodology used by Plex and other media players. For both Movies and for TV Shows.
Local Media Assets - Movies | Plex Support
Local Media Assets - TV Shows | Plex Support
Not having extras support is why I can’t fully commit to Infuse, and I really, really want to.
I hadn’t seen this thread and started my own thread asking how to access all of my “Extra’s” I had with Plex. Of course, I found out I couldn’t, and I consider that a major omission.
How do I access Extras (Featurettes, Deleted Scenes, Making of …, Trailers, etc) using the Plex Client?
I don’t see any of the Extras files anywhere in the Infuse Plex Client.
My file structure is from Plex. Am I overlooking an interface element, or do I need to arrange my file structure differently?
/Behind The Scenes
But I need Infuse to optimize 24p DVD and HD-DVD video quality (and video quality is far more important to me), but I will have to use the Plex Client app to access my “Extra’s”. It’s a workaround, but not convenient. I hope Infuse can support the Plex file/folder structure to organize and play “Extra’s” in the future.
